Berkshire Garden (Richmond, Virginia)
A brick Colonial-style residence, the Kibler House sits in roughly the center of a rectangular quarter-acre plot in a well-established Richmond neighborhood. Its east-facing front yard, which is indistinguishable from most of the other yards int he area, is severely planted with grass, six American boxwoods as foundation plants, and one crepe myrtle. The back yard servers as a pleasure garden and horticultural laboratory. It is entirely enclosed by an iron fence supported by brick footings and a series of piers. Other areas of the property include a circular courtyard, a cruciform brick path edged by English box, a small shrub and tree border, summer house, and vegetable patch.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Jones (former owners, 1949-1953); and Robert D. Kibler (garden designer and gardener, mid-1980s-present).
The folder includes a work sheet, site plans, narrative description, and plant lists.
